"Hombre" as written by and Richard/arulpragasam X....
Oi ga-ra-to Pi-qa mine nu-mu-ro
Me leaga-you teaser
Leaga para min,
Please sin

Excuse me little hombre
Take my number call me
I can get squeaky
So you can come and oil me

My finger tips and the lips
Do the work yeah
My hips do the flicks
As I walk yeah with a good head
I came to make it with a good head
I came to break it

Did your mama tell you
About me what she say
Don't go play there
Gonna make that hot boy
Want me gonna make that hot boy
Take me

You can stick me
Stab me grind me or wind me
Fuck we can even ask your wifey
Rich bored at home with a kiddie
She don't know about
You getting nookie

Member when you first started
Call me you had a ticket
Waitin' for me
SAid you want to meet in miami
So we can start a
Family

Hoytu hoytu
Cept cept
Cinko, quadro
Tres doie
You can call me over

    General CommentMaya's not speaking portuguese incorrectly. In fact, she isn't really speaking portuguese. She's speaking portañol: portugues + español. It's a mix of spanish and brazilian portuguese. It's spoken a lot here in Miami because of the mix of latin cultures and the fact that portuguese and spanish have so many similarities. It has a lot of slang words and it tends to distort both the languages from time to time. So it's not so much Maya's mistake as it is portañol's.

    General CommentJust for the sake of argument, I'm Brazillian and have only ever heard Spanish speakers use the word 'hombre'.

    Its still a hot song. Listening to it brings out my vampy side.

    General CommentHey! Of course they mean something... In these first lines she's trying to speak portuguese (Brazil), since she really like brazilian funk. And it means:
    Hello Boy
    Take my number
    Call me
    Call me
    Please sir
    :*

    General CommentI hate this. Why is the song called "Hombre" and she's saying or at least tryin to rap/sing in Portuguese? Then call the song "Homem", as is the word for "man" in Portuguese.

    And the Portuguese lyrics are wrong.

    Oi, garoto
    Pega minha numero
    Liga, you teaser
    Liga para mim, please sir

    And the correct way to would be "meu numero" but oh well.

    General CommentThe Variable:

    I didn't have to google anything. I am Portuguese and can speak it, which is why I was annoyed at MIA's errors.

    And I love M.I.A. but sampling from different cultures, an innovator does not make. Being an innovator but be doing something completely new on her own. Instead she borrows from reggae and baile funk. Not that that's bad, but still.
